Dr. Gena Wilson is an Integrative Functional Medicine physician, a board-certified Family Practice M.D. and a 15 year multidisciplinary practitioner of both conventional and holistic medicine. She is deeply committed to awakening her patients innate ability to heal, and focuses much of her work on helping individuals recognize and grow this capacity within themselves.
After almost a decade of providing care in the Hudson Valley, she has developed an extensive network of trusted health practitioners with whom she consults and collaborates to provide a full spectrum of care for adults, adolescents and children dealing with general diet and lifestyle imbalances, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, tick-born illnesses, chronic fatigue syndrome, thyroid dysfunction, food allergies, irritable bowel syndrome and fibromyalgia among many other wellness challenges.
Throughout her years of medical practice, Dr. Wilson has sought to deepen her understanding of sustainable wellness and how health imbalances arise and resolve. This ongoing exploration lead to her further medical studies through completion of a Preventive Medicine Residency Fellowship at The University at Albany, where she concurrently earned a Masters in Public Health. She went on to more deeply explore our body/behavioral/environmental interconnectedness through her training in Functional Medicine — an *integrated health systems* framework for wellness focused on understanding the root elements of illness and the pathways to recovery through advanced laboratory diagnostics, genetic testing, detoxification programs, stress-management techniques, therapeutic diets, lifestyle/exercise coaching and carefully considered medicines, herbs and supplements.
Dr. Wilson strives to *listen* deeply to the body and sees the physician as an interpreter and resource guide in the mission of translating histories of illness and imbalance into patient empowering maps of recovery and well-being. This loving commitment to unhurried patient centered care provides the time and close attention that keenly supports the roots of deep and lasting health.
